You might have to squeeze the air out. :lol: I frequently check the Jackson craigs list is how I came across this. Have you ever used searchtempest.com to look for some thing you want? You enter your zip code, how far you want to search and the category you want to search. Click enter and on the next screen click open results. You can then view every craigs list just by clicking each city. I ran zip 28081 for 125 miles and came up with the following,

Ad says these fit 14.9 x 28 for $150. I have no idea if they could be made to fit a cub or not.

I'm not very close to the Jackson area. About an hour and a half.

Thanks Vern, that's a lot for chains that need to be resized. Wonder what 8.3x24 cost new ?

Judging from the bricks they would need to be narrowed and shortened. Looks to be 25-30 inches wide.

Depending on the winter weather in your area,your local highway dept. may have some sets of chains too worn for them to use,but suitable for you to make up a set for a Cub.
